Bethbury, Elizabeth, Aquadome, Swimming Pool, History - South Australia

Elizabeth Swimming Pool (formerly: Bethbury Pool), now Elizabeth Aquadome.


The Aquadome is the largest swimming centre in northern Adelaide. Included in this multi-purpose facility are a 50m pool, a beach entry leisure pool, cafe, a creche, outdoor pinic areas, a large carpark, and easy access to bus and rail transport. The Health Club, opened in 2009, contains a modern gym and fitness centre.

The Aquadome is an iconic landmark of the North and was recipient of the 2010 Be Active Recreation and Sport Industry Award for best facility.
The redeveloped Aquadome, situated at Crockerton Road, Elizabeth, was officially opened on July 18 2009 after undergoing a $15.8m refurbishment. The Aquadome's redevelopment was partially funded by the Federal Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and the State Office for Recreation and Sport.
The state of the art facility features many 'green' initiatives. Among them, 150m2 of solar panels which generate a massive 15kw of power, the use of aquifer storage recovery (ASR) water for toilet flushing and landscaping and a building management system (BMS) which provides efficient lighting and temperature control.
It provides a variety of recreation and leisure activities and includes an upgraded 50m pool, a 25m and leisure pool with beach entry and water features, new 110m waterslide, spa, steam room, gymnasium, group fitness room, crèche and café.
The Aquadome was designed as a key recreational facility within the City of Playford with the goal to assist in the health and wellbeing of the community through greater participation in physical activity. Since its redevelopment the Aquadome has seen a dramatic increase in participation at the facility including increased family usage (with over 30% of members on a family membership) and a 50% increase in senior programs.
The Aquadome is owned by the City of Playford and is managed under a long-term contract by the YMCA South Australia.
